The Berkshire Lyric Chorus begins rehearsals for the spring semester of its 2013-2014 season at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 13, at Pittsfield Unitarian Church on Wendell Avenue and Broad Street. New members are welcome.

There will be a simple vocal interview process for new singers, who should possess a voice that blends well, the ability to read music and some prior choral experience. Interviews will be scheduled after the first rehearsal.

The chorus is preparing two spring programs: the annual Kick the Winter Blues pop concert on March 23 and the June 1 Masterworks Concert at Tanglewood’s Seiji Ozawa Hall.
